Check Out The First Official Trailer For Marvel's 'Ant-Man'
Why should Iron Man, the Hulk, and Captain American get all of the big-screen glory? Marvel has produces dozens of other superheroes over the decades, many of whom are barely talked about today. One such superhero is the insect-sized Ant-Man, who after being exposed to a mysterious substance known as Pym Particles has the ability to shrink down to the size of an ant. Well, Marvel is bringing this unique superhero back in a full-length film of the same name, and we have the first official trailer for it.
Directed by Peyton Reed and produced by Kevin Feige, Ant-Man is an upcoming film based on the Marvel Comics series of the same name. It stars Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, as well as Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Judy Greer, Tip "T.I" Harris, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, Jordi Mollà, and Michael Douglas. Ant-Man is expected to hit theaters on July 17, 2015.
So, how does Paul Rudd look when sporting the Ant-Man suit? Check out the trailer below for a glimpse into this exciting new film.

The roughly 2-minute-long trailer doesn't reveal much about the film, but we are presented with some pretty cool scenes of Rudd riding what looks like a wasp. If you're familiar with the comic series, you're probably well aware of Ant-Man's superpower. After being exposed to the Pym Particles, he can size-shift to extreme sizes, ranging from near-microscopic to over 100 feet tall. Furthermore, he maintains the strength of his normal size in a shrunken state.
Here's a fun fact: according to NatureWorldNews.com, the American Field Ant can withstand pressures up to 5,000 times its own body weight.
Like most of the previous films in the Marvel Universe, Stan Lee -- the "godfather" of superhero comics -- is expected to make a cameo in Ant-Man. When speaking with reporters, Lee said that he'd "better be in it." "I better be in it, and actually, I never know, because sometimes they’ll shoot a movie in another part of the world and I’m not able to get there,” said Lee in an interview with ScreenRant. “So I hope they shoot it somewhere around here so I can do a scene.” While there's not necessarily a definitive answer, it's safe to assume that Lee will at least show up in the film, as he does in nearly all of the Marvel movies.
